Yummy! 'Glad Toben's home before the next snow.

PS I got a special package in the mail! I will be writing a little something back to you soon in the mail. You are a gem!

Much love,

Lisa R-P

The cake looks yummy. Thank you so much for the package. What a nice surprise in my mail box today. You are so thoughtful!

erin s. looks so delicious Joanne. I am sure Toben appreciated the effort even if it didn't turn out as good as you hoped. I have a fail proof yummy chocolate cake recipe if you ever want it. Enjoy your weekend.


It certainly LOOKS like the best chocolate cake ever. And your meal...yum-o!
Sending you a big hug this morning, just 'cuz.
Love u.


"Just because he's home again..." That's so sweet! I'll bet it made him feel loved. That's a nice idea, Joanne! Looked delish!


Good morning...

Honestly can anything that has powdered sugar sprinkled on top be half bad...doubtful...glad that all your family parts are and sound!

Have a blessed and joyous weekend,



You should try making Oreo cheesecake! It's yummy!
